    Default Alternative paint schemes

    Came across a bunch of alternate paint jobs for the Colonial Viper - not sure how accurate they are

    This one might just make it to the paint table once I get a spare Viper.



    The rest of them are here

    I thought there might be an all white one with a large red #5 on it. I do like a number of those in the album.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    Wow, that orange is very visually striking! I had a look in the album, and there are some very nice colour schemes in there. I think I'll probably also be inclined to do a couple of repaints later down the track.

    The Mk II in the classic White with Red stripe in my favourite, but a lot of those are very attractive. I do also like the look of the Mk VII in the classic white and red too, it will be coming out as a pre-paint in a silver/grey/gunmetal colour I imagine, so a re-paint for some of those into the classic white and red is very much on the cards!

    Needs “General Leel” on the upper canopy though! It just looks wrong on the nose.

    I hope you get to paint one up, That would look cool. Particularly on the original vipers.

    In ' battlestar Galactica blood and chrome ' the vipers were painted silver/grey with the red stripes, not white as the main series.

    I believe the Mk VII coming later this summer will look a bit like this:

    The Mk VIIS should be Galactica and Pegasus Vipers, with slightly different stats.

    And with a bit of research, cause I'm not a big BSG fan, I discovered that 'Blood and Chrome' has Mk III Vipers?

    I am fairly sure that most of those paint schemes in your album were produced 'just for fun', Dave.

    I really like BJ's art. He posts regularly on TrekBBS (or used to), and I've seen a lot of his stuff there. In addition to repaints like this, he has done some great drawings of cartoon versions of ships. Here is a link to BJ's Battlestar Galactica page on Deviant Art.

    Oooo, love the orange one. I think a 'Tiger' version will soon be in my hangar.

    As my old brain understands it, the re-imagined BSG series predates our own history by thousands of years. No General Lee or Colonel Sanders paint jobs.

    Personally, I intend to repaint a couple in obviously non-canon schemes.
    Of course, given the amount of planes (ships, tanks, men.....) in the queue, .....
